    John, Came across your review just today while researching this kit - very nicely done, thanks. Gene K
  2. Sadly for me too. Reminds me too much of the R.V. Rivet Monster. Hoping for a "cleaner" series from Special Hobby!! Gene K
  3. Has anyone heard of a (new) release date? Last I saw was Feb 2019. Gene K

    Yes, I agree Giorgio! I love that old Monogram kit. Gene K

    Smarter design would not have left off obvious Phantom features such as the vents ... and would not have included the extra seams on the wing tanks. However, the extra features you po-poed like the extended flaps and the folding wings are certainly not "wasted plastic" in my opinion ... they are appreciated options. Gene K
  6. Jaime, I'll certainly be looking forward to your comparison, but frankly, you've shown me that in MANY areas, the "old" Fujimi kit outshines the short-changed Airfix kit (with due respect for your masterful building skills). Gene K
  7. Giorgio, That looks brilliant (literally). I assume you recommend this paint? Gene K

    What plastic was wasted? Gene K
  9. Outstanding in all respects, Giorgio!! I am reminded of a Carly Simon verse: Nobody does it better Makes me feel sad for the rest Nobody does it half as good as you Baby, you're the best It would be great if you could post a picture of you and your helper daughter with the Ford! Gene K
  10. Just clicking the "Lke" button isn't enough for me to express how much I appreciate such a well crafted review!! Gene K
  11. Correct - an upper pitot tube and a lower Ram Air Bellows on the short noses; just the bellows on the long nose. The bellows are part of the artificial trim system for the stabilator. Looking at the latest pictures, appears ZM snipped the pitot tube from the E model tail. Gene K
  12. I initially gave myself a rolling-eyes-face-palm when I read this ... but ... the posted picture of the mock up shows a pitot tube on the vert stab leading edge. Of course we all know that in the E model, the pitot tube was relocated to the nose. Creepy conjecture, Pete. Gene K

    Ah so ... THAT Ali. I already have his intakes, so need to also get the other Phantom items. Thanks! Gene K

    Stunning "conversion". Could you provide a link to Ali's website or to where he sells his Phantom upgrades, please? Thanks, Gene K
  15. I hope they fix the shortcuts they took in the first release. Gene K
